If you’re looking for a new gaming monitor in the market, one of the most important decisions you need to make is whether to buy a curved or flat display. Corsair has developed a solution and made a monitor that offers the best of both worlds. The Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 is a flexible OLED gaming monitor that you can easily bend with your bare hands. The tech was showcased by LG at CES earlier this year and now we finally see it in action.
The transforming 45-inch OLED display can be easily bent by hand from flat to an 800R curve. You can easily use the flat screen for productivity apps, but if you want to do some gaming as well, just bend the screen until it’s an ideal setting for your gaming setup. You can easily choose the degree to which you want to bend the monitor, you can even bend the monitor from one side only for any specific game. Besides the bendable display, there are also some amazing specs that this monitor provides. The 45-inch W-OLED panel is provided by LG Display, with a 21: 9 aspect ratio giving you a ton of space to multitask. The display comes in very sharp 3440 x 1440 resolution, and the 240Hz refresh rate gives smooth performance and enables quick reflexes in games. The display can reach up to 1000 nits of brightness, and since it is OLED the contrast ratio is 1,350,000:1 since individual pixels can be turned off entirely. The anti-glare coating on the display prevents distractions by stopping the light from catching from different directions.

The bendable display gives 20% more screen compared to any ultrawide display of 49-inches. This OLED monitor also offers “Low Blue Light technology” meant to reduce eye strain. Apart from the bendable OLED panel, it has self-lit pixels, and Nvidia G-Sync & AMD FreeSync support, all of which contribute to eliminating motion blur and delivering a screen-tearing-free gaming experience.
A thing that we are interested to see is how durable it will be over time.OLED monitors tend to get ghosting or burn in over time. Let’s see how these bendable displays work out in the long term. Corsair hasn’t announced the price and availability of this monitor but it will be more likely to be at the end of this year. But considering the price of other OLED monitors, these bendable monitors will surely create a hole in your pocket.
